2010 Short Story Reading Challenge

shortstoryreadingchallenge

January 1 – December 31, 2010

Kate at Kate’s Book Blog is reviving her Short Story Reading Challenge for 2010. I loved this challenge in 2008, and Kate gives readers a choice of participation level – so I am in! I’ve chosen:

Option 5: This is the custom option under the rubric of which you can tailor your reading list to best meet your personal reading aspirations.

I am going to read 5 short story collections during the year by authors I have not yet read. Here are some options which I already have on my shelves:

  1. The Secret Lives of People in Love by Simon Van Booy – COMPLETED June 27, 2010; rated 4/5; read my review.

The Bohemian Girl and Other Stories by Willa Cather

Gods and Soldiers, an Anthology of Contemporary African Writing

Delicate Edible Birds by Lauren Groff

Reasons For and Advantages of Breathing by Lydia Pelle

Drinking Coffee Elsewhere by Z.Z. Packer

One More Year by Sana Krasikov

The Boat by Nam Le
